I was privileged to know Glenn way back when we were cadets--when a sense of humor may have been one of the most important things anyone could bring to what was daily a very demanding place. His wry and sharp wit brightened many a day for us, and he was a good classmate and friend when we all needed that. Am a full-time writer now, and appreciate that Glenn has created writings that will speak to those who loved him, and to his friends, for many, many years to come. Since none of us is getting younger, it's wise to consider what we'll leave behind some day besides memories. Glenn has left something tangible and important that any of us can look at when we like--the writings of his own hand. We can all thank him for that. He lived well, loved well, and created something for others. Most men should be so wise, and so lucky. Thinking of you, Bill and Sue Eckert
